Following meeting with High Wycombe Community Board Team and Councillor Julia Wassell in May 2021, Transport for Buckinghamshire are proposing to introduce traffic calming measures along Hicks Farm Rise (between its junctions with Baring Road and Gayhurst Road)

The purpose of this traffic calming measure is to improve road safety by reducing vehicle speeds.

We want to hear the views of residents and local businesses on our proposals. We will also contact statutory consultees.

What we are proposing / consulting on

The Hicks Farm Rise Traffic Calming Scheme proposes to introduce four pairs of speed cushions (total of 8 individual cushions).

The four pairs speed cushions would be located approximately (from cushions' centre line):

  • 51 metres south of the junction with Baring Road
  • 156 metres south of the junction with Baring Road 
  • 126 metres north of the junction with St Hughes Avenue
  • 35 metres north of the junction with Gayhurst Road

They would be spaced at 74 to 228 metre intervals on the road. Our aim is to reduce speeds and discourage rat running. 

We will notify Thames Valley Police of this intention
